Basically I've been invited to play in a tournament in holland in october and the entry needs to be in before i start uni. It will involve taking a thursday friday monday tuesday off uni (coz we need to go to newcastle to get the boat... no cheap flights )
I was really really up for going, international experience, have a good time etc. but i'll only have started a month at this point. Will the uni really frown apon me taking time off? Is there an official way to take time off? (I know its not like school...) Will i get really behind in work??
I already know i definitely need a week off in February for the Scottish Championships as well as odd friday afternoons to travel to competitions
Can someone give me some advice?
